Lapa Clarete Red

We are very proud to introduce another clarete to our range, with a stunning vintage label to pair perfectly with an ancient technique! This isn’t a red, isn’t a white, its a clarete! Intrigue your customers with this very different style of winemaking, but grab it while our stocks last as there is a limited quantity available! Winemaking Process: This Claret wine was crafted from selected grapes of the Fernão Pires (white) & Castelão (red) varietals. A lesser used practice of co-fermentation of the red & white musts, following a short period of skin contact for colour & flavour. Tasting Notes: Pale ruby in colour with bright sanguine hues, intense fruity aromas reveal hints of sweet & morello cherries. Vibrant strawberry & red apple flood your senses with your first sip, revealing a tart sourness on the palate that adds to the freshness. Excellent mouthfeel & length, with lingering fruit. Pairing Suggestions: A very versatile gastro-wine which pairs well with charcoal grilled red meat, roast turkey, pepper/paprika dishes, oven baked fish, as well as vegan poached pears & nut roast. Serving Temperature: 12-14°C
